COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jai Alai India Pale Ale pays tribute to the original extreme sport. Jai Alai, a game native to the Basque region of Spain, is played on a court called a fronton. Jai Alai players attempt to catch a ball using a curved mitt, whilst the ball travels at speeds of up to 188 miles per hour! Proving they have a sense of humor the Spanish dub this game, with its ball traveling at race car speeds, """"the merry game."""" Tampa was once home to a busy Jai Alai fronton but sadly all that remains of Jai Alai in the Tampa Bay area is this India Pale Ale that we brew in tribute to the merry game. The India Pale Ale style of beer has its roots in the strong ales sent from England to thirsty British troops in India during the 18th century. To survive the journey the beers needed more alcohol and more hops (which act as a natural preservative). This “big” brewing practice made India Pale Ale one of the first """"extreme beers"""" and a favorite among the Queens military men in India. Eventually it became a favorite style of the new crop of American brewers seeking more flavor and complexity than mass-market brewers were willing to offer.

Draft @ Underground Bluz. I had been wanting to t;ry this beer for a long time. I was not disappointed. One of the smoothest, freshest IPAs I have had. Taste was pink grapefruit from the start, but not bitter like some of the yellow varieties of grapefruit. (Being a Floridian, I know the difference.) Nice hoppy finish with no distractions along the way. Refreshing.

Out of a can - £7.70 for 330ml! Great pour, perfect light but cloudy. Best colour i’ve seen in an IPA - almost amber / gold. Great smell pungent but citrusy. Great mouth. Smooth flavoursome, bitter as hell but balanced with citrus and hops everywhere. Bitter aftertaste - heavily dry hopped?. A great experience will definitely do again but expensive! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce can at home. Hazy orange in color. Scent of pine and citrus. Medium off white head. Medium taste of the hops This has an after taste that lingers. Above average beer for the style. Cheers!

Slightly hazy dark orange color with off-white head. Aroma has some caramelized malt, piney hops and orange peel. Taste follows with light caramel, bitter orange peel, resiny hops, quite bitter on the finish with lingering grapefruit flavor. Light to medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Really well balanced flavors, classic and well made.

Mid bitter but not overly lingering. Citrusy, orange, a little sweet to balance out, a bit of pine, real easy drinkin
